    I am part of a serious thing! I have never been asked by a secretary or personal assistant to call back later. So it was, earlier this year, when I crested one of the higher ridges on Olifants in order to get an uninterrupted view of a particular sunset. It is presented in no particular order or sequence.

    Which brings us to the here and now. But that was just the first of what would become an impressive roll-call of accolades. Invariably, this courtesy then includes a brief enquiry as to how things are on the reserve. The topics range from the earliest recollections of my interest in wildlife through a broad spectrum of nature conservation and environmental issues, to tales of my interaction with the bush and its inhabitants mostly viewed from the reserve's perspective. Without these cookies, we won't know if you have any performance-related issues that we may be able to address.

    Krugers experiences follow that pattern except the boring hours are interesting also. Both the content and the intent range from conventional to controversial. He also undertook the slaying of 1, raider elephants. Please review the types of cookies we use below.

Mambas and man-eaters book

There is no magic formula, it is practical common sense and the dependence on and respect for the environment that is the key. Then after some years of waiting and never getting any jobs, I felt let down and thought my whole life I would be in the village carrying firewood and water cans.

It is what it was. The topics range from the earliest recollections of my interest in wildlife through a broad spectrum of nature conservation and environmental issues, to tales of my interaction with the bush and its inhabitants mostly viewed from the reserve's perspective.

With a naturalist's eye for detail as well as the bigger picture of managing a fragile ecosystem through years of drought and plenty, Mario Cesare brings a storyteller's delight - and a dash of Italian passion - to sharing his world.

But that was just the first of what would become an impressive roll-call of accolades. This eBook is not available in your country. To learn more about cookies, please see our cookie policy. Without these cookies, we can't provide services to you. Please review the types of cookies we use below.

Which brings us to the here and now. That idea was also doomed to an early failure when he actually started to fly with the pilots who make up the airborne operation of the airline.

Never before has the story of a man and his dog revealed so much of the flavour of life in such an exquisite wild location and, though over a century has passed since the transport wagons carved their trails to and from Delagoa Bay, the scent evoked of dust and rain remains the same and the grey ghosts of kudu and elephant still melt into the bush.

He has disgustedly left active duty flying with the Navy as the result of witnessing inept officers who should never have made the grade continue to fly and serve without any leadership skills or command authority amounting to anything effective.

It is presented in no particular order or sequence. He found the same weaknesses on the part of the airline pilots that he had witnessed in the Navy pilots he had flown with. Brand new Book.

Man Eaters: True Tales of Animals Stalking, Mauling, Killing, and Eating Human Prey

Olifants River Game Reserve, 'Olifants' from here on, is a privately owned Big Five game reserve, unique among Lowveld reserves in that it has a perennial river running through it. The intention is not to be provocative, however, but rather to question history, the status quo and alternative futures with an open mind, very much coloured by the realities and the challenges of life on Olifants.

Mario Cesare's career has taken him from Timbavati and Mala Mala to Olifants River and beyond - and he delights in sharing his good fortune. Mario Cesare Dr Ian Player, one of the world's most respected conservationists, addressing a gathering of the Game Rangers Association of Africa, once said, 'Keep records of your experiences For example, they let us know which features and sections are most popular.

His latest task: to develop and nurture the Olifants River Game Reserve as the fences of the Greater Kruger National Park area fall, undoing generations of damage. Without these cookies, we won't know if you have any performance-related issues that we may be able to address.

Krugers experiences follow that pattern except the boring hours are interesting also. It was one of those events which, given my limited vocabulary, frustratingly defied description. Life-and-death encounters with lion, elephant and buffalo are balanced by rescues and interventions as these giants of the Lowveld suffer the effects of human interference in their ecosystem.

The shareholders, the 'family' of Olifants, always want to know the latest news from the reserve and I always want to share it with them. I have attempted to make this of interest to those of you who do not wear white dustcoats and thick bifocals. In some cases, I may disturb some of the dust that has gathered on traditional thinking and may seem insensitive on sensitive matters.

MAMBAS AND MAN EATERS

There is no rush better than this. Partly Greek, Ionides is a rarity among African game wardens and hunters in that he is also a naturalist. Equally, I am not a seasoned author, so although the words that have emerged as this publication may have been typed by my fingers, they come from the heart often with the emotional content unedited and loosely structured.

Most of them were, in the young mans opinion, timid beings who were only concerned with keeping their status quo resulting in their refusal to make decisions let alone lead in any forward power projections.Heart of a Game Ranger is a story of extremes, where spectacular days that end in exhausted satisfaction and achievement are balanced by those that leave behind only despair and frustration.

Seen through his eyes and spoken from the heart, Cesare tells a deeply personal story – not only of a life lived wild, but of the joy of Africa's. Get this from a library!
